Best Self-Bans Ever?
« on: March 26, 2011, 08:45:31 PM »
As we can see now, Janet is currently doing all that she can to insure her ban at DTF is permanent and noticed by everyone.

Which spurs the discussion: in your history of posting and forums, what have been some of the best AND worst "blazes of glory" you've seen people go out in? What ways, in other words, have you seen people use ban themselves?

At this one forum I modded for a brief time, there was literally like a mutiny of sorts. Half of the mod staff and a bunch of members all sort of "united," posting these long, epic manifestos about everything that was wrong with the community and especially the admin and then all migrated to a new forum. There were screencaps of stuff that some mods and admins were posting about the membership in the special, hidden staff-only forum.

The admin had everything taken down and everyone banned pretty quickly, but it was still epic to watch going down in real-time. I was friends with people on both sides, but ultimately wound up staying with the original forum.

I'm interested to hear what everyone else has got.

Oh I thought bots were allowed. In that case, Arcaeus was a weird one.  I wonder why he did it though.

Arcaeus went out in a final flash of glory, nevermore to grace the night.

And then he became Cygnus X-1.

Hef is right on all things. Except for when I disagree with him. In which case he's probably still right.

I know of one...
"All great works are prepared in the desert, including the redemption of the world. The precursors, the followers, the Master Himself, all obeyed or have to obey one and the same law. Prophets, apostles, preachers, martyrs, pioneers of knowledge, inspired artists in every art, ordinary men and the Man-God, all pay tribute to loneliness, to the life of silence, to the night." - A.

I'm not sure if this counts, but on my other forum, our admin went crazy and started banning random members for no particular reason. Then one member got into contact with the original admin who designed the site (and does a lot of stuff for Division 13), and he immediately banned the old admin and cleaned up the forum, since it needed a lot of upgrading. I was made moderator a few months later.

Was he like a dumb teenager or something? That's sort of like what happened at the place I was talking about. Kids running forums!

You think he would be, but he was actually some unemployed 40-something :lol Well, it was during the year that he got laid off, so it's almost like he took all his frustration out on the forum :P

Most of our mods are teens (I'm 18, almost 19), and they do a pretty good job. Our admin is the creative director (I don't know if he's THE creator director, but certainly one of them) of Division 13, so that's pretty cool. It's a funny situation of retaliation. I always thought the old admin was an odd choice, since he was usually very bitter and unpleasant to be around, and very resistant to any forum suggestions.

At this old forum I went to, every time someone wanted to ban themselves, there was only one way to go: The porn post. They'd max out the length of a post with links to porn sites, images, videos, whatever. They'd also include forum memes that had gotten annoying to the point of an insta-ban (ASCII of Mario riding Yoshi, long story), and they'd get around the language filter (FLICK in the thread title and the like). They were legendary, if a little stupid. But, hey, porn, that's always nice.

Really the only one I've seen was on another forum; it was one you weren't even allowed to swear on and this kid goes right to crazy porn. He didn't just link it, with high quality pics of "multiple animal species involved" in your face.

The mods must've been sleeping because he got like eight threads going before he stopped.

LUE, right? And the legendary LUEshi?

I remember back on another GameFAQs board, someone tried to account suicide. Posted a single link to a picture containing nudity. Not even exactly porn. The topic reached the post limit of 500. Someone else in the topic was banned for one of their posts in the thread. But the OP got maybe a suspension at most.
